Abstract:

Current joint doctrine clearly defines how a combatant commander can develop plans, organize forces, and conduct psychological operations within operational and tactical realms. However, joint doctrine stops short of providing solid mechanisms and procedures to integrate theater strategic psychological operations at the national level and with other governmental agencies responsible for information activities. A revision of joint publications Interagency Coordination During Joint Operations JP 3-08 Joint Information Operation JP 3-13 and Psychological Operations JP 3-53 must occur to clearly define a coordination mechanism to integrate theater strategic psychological operations initiatives at the national level.
